The skinniest home in New York City has just sold for a reported $2.175 million. According to Curbed NY, the home’s original listing price of $2.75 million was slashed to $2.499 million before it found a buyer who managed to bargain the price down another 13 percent.

The seller paid $1.6 million for the house after a bidding war in 2000.

The property at 75 1/2 Bedford St, New York, NY 10014 is 999 square feet and is only 9 1/2 feet wide. It was built in 1873. The Dutch-style home has three stories, plus a basement.

Located in Manhattan’s West Village, the home has housed such notables as Cary Grant and John Barrymore. Perhaps they left behind some of their custom furniture?

    It really is amazing how local real estate can be. For $2.175M, you could get the best views in a massive custom home on an oversized lot over an acre. I guess Manhattan is the place to be.

    I once knew someone who lived in this house and he could stand in the center and almost touch each outer wall. Can you say tiny?

    At least it has a gated front yard.

    The Dutch had a land scarcity and taxed the width of home. That is how that design came about. Amersterdam is full of houses like that.

    Typically they have large windows and they would hoist the furniture up and in.
